The edi­to­rial ‘Gas cham­ber’ Delhi: ur­gent ac­tion needed to cut pol­lu­tion

(Novem­ber 5) was mean­ing­ful and thought-pro­vok­ing. The capital’s on­go­ing cri­sis was nicely an­a­lysed, es­pe­cially the bit about how mil­lions of city dwellers – from veg­etable ven­dors to traf­fic po­lice­men and rick­shaw-pullers – face a tough time. One ag­gra­vat­ing cause is the waste that is burnt by farm­ers and which causes smoke to spread to the city. The gov­ern­ment must im­ple­ment more strin­gent mea­sures to con­trol pol­lu­tion lev­els.
